The design of this School is to prepare students for admission 
to College. The terms and fees are the same as in Kenyon Col- 
lege. The government and instruction are in charge of the 
College Faculty. 

The Students have rooms in the College buildings, and board 
at private houses in the village. 



Krqubrtcs far J|frftisfiiini to IjjoIIeg*. 



Candidates for the Freshman Class are examined in the fol- 
lowing studies: 

English — Grammar; Reading; Spelling; and Composition. 

Mathematics— Arithmetic ; Algebra, to and including sim- 
ple equations ; Geometry, to and including the theory of parallel 
lines. 

The candidate should be practiced in mental exercises in 
arithmetic, and should be acquainted with the decimal system of 
weights and measures, also with circulating decimals and the 
extraction of the square root. 

Latin— Grammar, including Prosody ; Arnold's Prose Com- 
position, to Chapter VIII; Caesar, Three Books; Cicero, Four 
Orations against Catiline; Virgil, Four Books of the Mneid. 

The student should, in connection with the Grammar, study 



20 G AM Bl Kit 



some elementary Header, such as Arnold's First Latin Book, 
edited by Harkness. The exercises should be both written and 
repeated orally. 

Greek — Grammar, including Prosody and Composition ; 
Xenophon's Anabasis, Three Books; Homer's Iliad, One Book. 

Goodwin's Grammar is used as a manual. Some simple 
Reader, or Companion Book of Exercises, should be used, in 
connection with the Grammar. 

Geography — Ancient and Modern. 

Ancient History — Smith's History of Greece, to page 102; 
Liddell's History of Rome, Twenty-four Chapters. 

History and Geography should be studied together. In read- 
ing Caesar and Xenophon, there should be constant reference to 
the map. 

Mythology— A Hand-Book, such as Baird's Classical Man- 
ual, should be studied in connection with Virgil and Homer. 
A good Classical Dictionary and a Dictionary of Antiquities are 
necessary to every classical student. 

Candidates for advanced standing are examined in the above 
studies, and in the studies that have been pursued by the class. 

Fair equivalents are received for any of the above named 
books, or for parts of them. The books named serve to indicate 
the amount required. 

If a student is further advanced in some studies than in 
others, he may pursue the studies for which he is prepared. 
Opportunities are furnished to such irregular students to make 
up the defective study. 

Candidates for admission must present testimonials of good 
moral character ; and if they come from other Colleges, certifi- 
cates of dismission in good standing. 

The regular Examination for admission to College takes place 
on the Monday preceding Commencement, beginning at 8S 
o'clock, A. M. Another examination is held on the day before 
the opening of the Christmas Term, at the same hour. Students 
may be examined for an advanced standing at any time before 
the commencement of the second term o f the Senior year.

TERMS AND VACATIONS. 

The Commencement is held on the last Thursday in June. 
For particular dates, see the Calendar, page 18. 

ATTENDANCE. 

Students not in their places at the opening of the Term must 
show by written statement from their parents or guardians that 
the absence was necessary. 

No student may be absent during ihe Term without leave. 
Parents and guardians are requested not to give their consent to 
any absence. 

Students are required to attend Morning and Evening Prayers 
in the College Chapel, also the public Services on Sundays, and 
on the principal Holy-days of the Church. 

MATRICULATION. 

A student is admitted to matriculation w T hen he has sustained 
a satisfactory probation. Matriculation gives accredited mem- 
bership in the Institution, and entitles the student to an honora- 
ble dismission. For misconduct, he may be reduced to the con- 
dition of a Probationer. 



DEGREES. 

The Degree of Bachelor of Arts is conferred upon all students 
in good standing who are approved at the final examinations of 
the Senior Class. 

Candidates for the Degree of Master of Arts in course, must 
show that they have, since taking the Bachelor's Degree, been 
engaged for three years in the study or practice of one of the 



CATALOGUE. L 25 



learned professions, or in other scientific or literary pursuits ; 

and each candidate must deliver to the Faculty an Essay upon 
some literary or scientific theme. 

That there may be time to act upon the application, and to 
prepare the diploma, application should be made to the Presi- 
dent at least one week before Commencement. The fee for either 
Degree is jive dollars, payable in advance. 

LITERARY SOIETIES. 

The two Literary Societies, the PkUomathesian and Nil Pi 
Kappa, have always been fostered by the College. The Society 
Halls are very commodious, and have been fitted up at great 
expense, occupying the whole of the second and third stories of 
the central portion of Ascension Hall. All the students are 
active members. The meetings are held every week, for prac- 
tice in declamation, essay, oratory and discussion. These exer- 
cises, with the mutual criticism which forms a part of the regu- 
lar work, and the generous rivalry maintained between the 
Societies, contribute very much to the education of the students 
as writers and speakers. 

LIBRARIES. 

The students have access to the libraries of: The Theological 
Seminary, Kenyon College, the Philomathesian Society, and 
the Nu Pi Kappa Society. The aggregate number of volumes 
in these four libraries is about 21,000. 

ASSISTANCE. 

Students having the ministry in view are assisted on making 
the requisite application to the various Education Societies of 
the Church : The Education Committee of the Diocese of Ohio, 
the Evangelical Education Society, and the Society for the In- 
crease of the Ministry. Tuition fees are remitted to the sons of 
( 'lergymen canonically resident in the Diocese of Ohio. Merito- 
rious students of the College or Grammar School, whose circum- 
stances require it, may, at the discretion of the Faculty, engage 
in teaching, for which opportunity often occurs without the 
necessity of leaving Gambier. 

The College fees of indigent and meritorious students may be 
remitted in part, or in whole, upon application.

EXPENSES. 

Each room is sufficiently large and convenient to accommo- 
date two students. The rooms are provided with stoves, and 
arc neatly painted and papered by the College. Students pro- 
vide their own beds, furniture, lights, books, and stationery. 
Furniture can often be bought at second hand. 

The College bill is payable in advance, at the beginning of 
each term. The charges are: for tuition, $10 per term, for room 
rent $5 per term, and for incidentals $10 per annum. A matricu- 
lation fee of $5 is charged to every student at his entrance. 
There are also some minor expenses, consisting of taxes volun- 
tarily imposed by the students in their Classes and Literary So- 
cieties, and the expenses at graduation. 

Every student on entering the College, or preparatory school, 
must deposit $5 with the Treasurer, as security for damage. The 
charges upon this fund have averaged less than one dollar per 
year to each student. The balance is returned to the student on 
leaving. 

When a student is absent for a Term, and is afterwards, upon 
examination, allowed to go on with his class, tuition is charged 
for the time of his absence. Room rent is charged when a room 
is reserved for a student. 

Fuel is supplied by the Agent of the College, and must be 
paid for in advance, at the same time with the bill for tuition. 
The charge is $8 per term for the first and second terms, and $4 
for the third term ; and twice these sums when a room is occu- 
pied by a single student. 

Board can be obtained either in clubs or in private houses. 
The price of board is at present, in clubs, less than $3 ; in pri- 
vate houses, $3.50 to $4 per week. Students are not allowed to 
board themselves in their rooms. 

Regular College bill, for Tuition, Rent, and Incidentals, $55; 
Fuel, $20 to $40; Board, $90 to $152; Washing, $20 to $25; 
Lights, $3 to $6 ; Books and Stationery, $10 to $20 ; Total regular 
expenses for one year, $199 to $298. 

Parents are advised not to allow their sons a greater amount 
of money than is sufficient to pay the ordinary and reasonable 
expenses..

ADMISSION. 

Any Candidate for Orders in the Protestant Episcopal Church 
in the United States may, on examination, be received as a Stu- 
dent in the Seminary; and any other person who may give suf- 
ficient evidence of a fair moral and religious character. 

EXAMINATIONS. 

Candidates for admission, not Bachelors of Arts, must pass a 
satisfactory examination in the Latin language, in classical and 
Hellenistic Greek, and in the general principles of Natural, In- 
tellectual, and Moral Philosophy, and of Rhetoric. They will 
also be required to read an Original Composition. 

Under proper restrictions, and under the direction of the 
Faculty, students may avail themselves of the facilities fur- 
nished by Ken yon Grammar School and Kenyon College, to 
prepare to enter the Seminary without a Diploma. In this case, 
a certificate from the College Faculty, that they have success- 
fully pursued the required studies, will be accepted in lieu of an 
examination. Candidates for the Ministry who take this course 
must exhibit the permission of their Bishop. 

Candidates for admission to an advanced standing must pass 
an examination in all the studies which the class they desire to 
enter has pursued. 

A public examination of each class is held previous to the 
Annual Commencement; and certificates are awarded to those 
who, on the final examination, are found to have successfully 
pursued the full course of study. 



28 GAM BIER 

MATRICULATION. 
Every student, on being admitted to full standing-, must sub- 
scribe the following declaration in the Matriculation Book of the 
Seminary: 

" We, the subscribers, Students in the Theological Seminary of the 
Protestant Episcopal < Jhurch in the Diocese of ( >hio, do solemnly promise, 
with reliance on Divine Grace, that we will faithfully obey the laws and 
pursue the studies thereof, endeavor to promote the reputation and inter- 
ests of the Seminary, and make daily efforts, by pious reading, self- 
examination, and secret prayer* to cultivate all religious and moral dis- 
positions and habits, and grow in those graces which should characterize 
the Christian and the Minister of the Cross." 

The day of Matriculation is determined each year by the con- 
venience of the Bishop, occurring, however, always in the 
month of December. 

SEMINARY YEAR. 
The Seminary year extends from the first Thursday in Octo- 
ber to the last Thursday in June. It is divided into three Terms, 
as follows: 

Christmas Teem — From first Thursday in October until Christmas 
Day. 

Easter Teem— From New Year's Day until Passion Week. 
Trinity Term — From Easter Monday until Commencement. 

During the Christmas Recess, Students have leave of absence. 
During Passion Week Becess, only recitations are suspended. 
Every Student is expected to be present on the first day of 
the term.
